. >> there ago. maybe there are more. >> we have a big article on race tracks on our website. >> the ingleside, you can still see that. >> they developed where that race track was, just south of ocean avenue, they kept the oval of the race track and created urbano drive. >> i think we have some progress of that. >> that is the inner sunset. that is where >> lawrence lives > i do. >> you can see the inner sandbank. it is a big old sand hill. they had to do a lot of grading. >> in the building department, when we go out and look to people to building development, as soon as they squared away the top 6 inches or whatever is there, it is all sand. forever. in my yard, and there is nothing you can do about it. it is what there is. it was generally developed in response to the 1890's for mid- winter there, which was held in golden gate park. would the first buildings that was built in that area was a bar called the little shamrock, and it is still there just west of lincoln, just west from ninth avenue. it was built to help service people who were working on the big winter fair

used the parameters of this space to find relationships between the work that is not out in the big gallery. >> i noticed a lot of artists doing really site-specific work. >> this is a pile of balloons, something that is so familiar, like a child's balloon. in this proportion, suddenly, it becomes something out of a dream. >> or a nightmare. >> may be a nightmare. >> this one over here is even harder to figure out what the initial material is. >> this is made out of puffy paint. often, kids use it to decorate their clothes. she has made all these lines of paint. >> for the pieces we are looking at, is there a core of foam or something in the middle of these pieces that she built on top of? >> i'm not telling. >> ah, a secret. >> this silver is aluminum foil, crumbled of aluminum foil. her aesthetic is very much that quiet, japanese spatial thing that i really admire. their attention to the materiality of the things of the world. >> this is a nice juxtaposition you have going on right now. you have a more established artists alongside and emerging artists. is that something important

't a big hit. he built a more conventional apartment building after that to replace it. it really was the 1906 earthquake and fire that sort of spelled the end of carville. you have these hundreds of thousands of people looking for new homes, suddenly displaced. now they might listen to these men and say, look, you were renting before. you don't want to live there. i've got this lot out here, sand dune. but it's $100. you can build a house here for cheap. suddenly, more conventional houses start being built around carville. and some of the stores that kind of started throughout in carville are used by the neighbors. and you start seeing that these conventional homes start pushing out the cars. so we have these cars in the great highway. but behind we have these more straight forward, real houses. here it is again. they're sort of closing in on it. and writers bemoaned that the old planks that were used between houses and cars were now being replaced by real sidewalks, electricity actually comes out pretty quick. the septic tanks, windmills get replaced by real plumbing. the neighb

business is because of the charm and the fact that i love this city. of it -- these big box stores coming in is going to in the long run markell's. i am in support of the legislation. thank you. >> i would like to remind anyone to turn off mobile devices that may sound off during the procedures. >> thank you. i also work for jeffrey's natural pet foods. i moved in 2007 and am happy to have a reason to stay. i was able to walk in to my local pet food store looking for exactly what it is i need. what they carry and other special items i may need them to order. other things i might want them to consider stocking. i was able to find work within the next few weeks at the store and i have been able to earn a living wage since then. i appreciate that opportunity. the small pet stores are receptive to their clients. we know dogs by name and we know clients by name, we know favorite foods, we know inclinations, we know allergies, we know so much about the people who we serve and we're able to do the things they need to serve their animals better and to cover all their needs. even as far as things

of big box and formula retail on neighborhood corridors, to look at how we can help support more economic impact studies and impacts on small businesses and to have living wage jobs and other issues factored in and looked at, as well, but i know those are bigger issues but as the supervisor of the richmond, i'm doing my best to look at step by step ways to help the small business climate and the vibrant community that we have. i'm willing to talk more with you about other issues as they come up, as well. commissioner moore: i'm prepared to support you but for us here in the commission, the questions are more urgent. just a few weeks ago, few months ago, had a cvs pharmacy which we done even know how to answer and when it comes to neighborhoods telling us that there are large amounts of vacancies in their area, we were hard pressed not to see that this might be one way to go although it's not the only way because i think anticipatory thinking and kind of like creating protections and barriers way ahead of time is really the answer so i would ask you as quickly as possible to help us on the

% of the workers we encouraged to locate and beyond big-market. they will be riding to work a lot. we need to expand those lines to make sure we work with it. i know that each of the supervisors will have a minute to say, but before they do, i wanted to welcome also our business partners, people encouraging their employees to ride to work. we have jeff from wells fargo. you are still with us, right? come on out here. we have peter from green apple books. where is peter? peter, come on up here. these are also the employers working with the city, working with our supervisors, all of them, to make sure they do the best enjoying our efforts. even when we do these, it has been public/private partnerships that actually keep and maintain this. i want to be your with everybody to announce that we have already been working on how we can fund more of these, so with the jfk route that we wrote this morning, recreation and park and mta have been working with our transportation authority through the board of supervisors, and they found a grant that would immediately allow them to plan for the jfk route

this decision was so appropriate. >> the other big shock is that the moderates seem to have won this round. people thought, progressives have themselves on the board. there is no reason that they will not get together and take a noted leader who is a progressive to be interim mayor, and then stayed there for another term. the great thing about being in term mayor is to get to run as an incumbent. the fact that the progressives could not get together to get somebody into office as interim mayor in their own self-interest was very surprising for a lot of us. >> what happened in the last month in city hall was an incredible show of democracy that was part policy, part politics, and it all came together, and more than anything -- not just from a reporter's perspective, often was this? but there was a public interest as well on what was going on in san francisco government. we take it for granted a law that there is a city government here. this was something that brought people together. you heard people talking about it at the cafes, park playground, people who do not always pay attention. in

that i support equitable development. i also do feel that big business and downtown interests usually dominate the discussion on development. i want to see a balance of those forces, but also with residents and environmentalists and others that have an important say as we try to create more complete streets and better designed neighborhoods that make it more livable for everyone. >> let's talk about the role of sports in the city's economic future. are you happy with the plans for the america's cup? do you think the city should try it spend money to keep the 49ers? supervisor mar: did not get me started. i could go on for a long time. i think america's cup will help the whole area. i think the organizing committee has a big task to raise a lot of private sector money so it does not impact negatively on our general fund, but i do think the deal crafted by a lot of the enforcement is a good deal will help a lot of the parts of the city that need the help. it is also a lot of gauging of community groups and the yacht club saying that they want to provide better boating opportunities and
